Chicken Stir Fry With Vegetables
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 cups white rice 4 cups water 2/3 cup soy sauce 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sesame oil 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained 1 head broccoli, broken into florets 1 cup sliced carrots 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 onion, cut into large chunks 1 tablespoon sesame oil 1 green bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
In a saucepan boil rice and water over high heat. Now on medium-low heat cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until rice is tender, and water has been absorbed by the rice.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar, cornstarch and soy sauce.
Mix red pepper, ginger, and garlic into the sauce and marinade your chicken and refrigerate for 20 minutes or up to 1 hour. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil over medium-high heat.
Cook and stir water chestnuts, broccoli, bell pepper, carrots, and onion for about 5 minutes or until just tender. Now remove chicken pieces from the marinade. Over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon sesame oil in skillet.
Cook and stir chicken for 2 minutes per side until slightly pink on the inside. Now add the warm vegetables and the marinade liquid (from the chicken) to skillet. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Serve over plain warm rice.
You can serve this dish white rice, noodles or fried rice or just serve it any of your favorite side dishes. But personally, if you ask me I like my chicken stir fry recipe with plain warm white rice.
This chicken and vegetables stir fry in a garlic soy sauce with brown sugar or honey brings you that awesome sweet and savory taste. You can make the sauce with simple ingredients like soy sauce, chicken broth, sesame oil.
